Echo Bear Cat released the new LS22 log splitter to its outdoor power equipment line. The LS22 log splitter is available worldwide through authorized Echo Bear Cat dealerships.
The LS22 features a Subaru SP170 engine. This 169cc engine features easy recoil starting and better cold weather starting performance. It’s shipped with the 4-gallon hydraulic system filled with Dexron III rated Automatic Transmission Fluid, which provides ease of operation on components in cold weather conditions. Storing the LS22 is easy and compact with the fold up trailer tongue.
The new model features a 30 inch bed height, giving the user a comfortable operating position, while decreasing physical effort and maximizing efficiency. It can be used in the horizontal or vertical positions and features an Engine Guard Plate and Log Stripper Plate as standard equipment. The wide end plate increases stability when operating the LS22 in the vertical position. “We wanted to make sure the operator feels comfortable and safe when running the machine,” said Jory Skalsky, design engineer. “With the 30 inch bed height and new standard features, operators should find operation simple and easy.”
The LS22 model comes available with a range of options and kits to design a custom machine to fit consumer needs. The Log Splitter Cradle Kit stables larger logs when placed on the bed, increasing safety and productivity. The Quick Split Kit allows the operator to set the retracking distance of the wedge, saving time and increasing productivity. Other kits available for the LS22 model include a Fenders and Lights Kit and 4-Way Splitting Wedge Kit.
